strategy for vice president biden tomorrow and next week with president obama and governor romney? is that the strategy? you have steve agreeing essentially again with bill clinton and took the swipe at him prior to that. >> i think it's a maistake if i is the strategy. i thought president clinton's strong suit at the democratic national convention is defending the obama record, not so much going after mitt romney. the attack i heard of president clinton, frankly, was infective in primary season and i think it's ineffective now. it might be fact based but i don't think it's the most effective pitch. bill clinton talking about arithmetic and the mechanics of obama's watch, that's him bringing the a-game. >> do you agree, lois? you can look at facebook and twitter and take it to a point but the visceral reaction of voters of the debate and the next two with the president, seems, yes, they want facts and figures but a little of that bill clinton twang or smackdown to come along with it. >> well, they want him to defend himself. i mean, he went mute. but i do agree to a certain point that
